Android Location Cache Viewer

Selasa, 26 April 2011

** For rooted phones, ONLY **

All the news right now is about how Apple is secretly recording your every location. Well, it turns out Android saves your location history in the exact same way.

Android only saves the last 50 cell locations and the last 200 wifi locations, but that could show a LOT about where you've been.

See where Android thinks you've been. See what others could find out if they had access to your phone.

Some of the points in the cache might be far outside of places you have been - this is due to errors in the databases Android uses to match wifi access points and cell towers to locations. There's nothing I can do about those - these are raw coordinates I am displaying exactly as the phone has saved them.

This requires your phone be rooted and will ask for permission to run as root when it loads. It is only reading a couple of cache files that are on the /data partition. These files aren't readable without root access.

Most of the errors seem to be due to having the Wireless Networks setting (under Settings->Location & Security) turned off. When this is turned off, nothing is cached.

Recent changes:
Added about dialog giving credit to people who inspired the project and who made the images resources I use.

Export to GPX (on SD card) format!

Replay points by chronological order. It just hops from point to point, but it's interesting to watch.

Cleaned up the information display at the bottom. No longer a sliding drawer, so it doesn't interfere with the zoom buttons.

Latest version: 0.85 (for Android version 2.1 and higher)
